The Golden Hour for Providers--Economic Crisis and the Impact of Health Reform
Healthcare providers are facing an unprecedented set of challenges as 2010 comes to a close. The hangover of economic turbulence in the past 2 years is just beginning to be felt by many providers as employment remains soft, many workers who involuntarily lost their jobs are losing COBRA subsidies and/or COBRA benefits, and consumer sentiment remains uncertain, at the same time that employers continue to shift costs onto employees and the total size of the commercial pool continues to slowly shrink. The environment for the next several years shows no sign of changing course from these difficult trends, until 2014, when the full impact of Health Reform will begin to be felt across the industry. During this talk, we will examine the challenges facing providers both pre- and post- reform, and discuss some of the imperatives it will take for winners to remain ahead of the game and emerge from this "Golden Hour" with a clean bill of health.
